Why in-house social responsibility teams can't do it alone

No worthwhile environmental action is simple or straightforward. Some organisations attempt to coordinate their own CSR initiatives by directly engaging small projects around the world.

But they’re usually met with a lot of obstacles.

Empower Plastic Credits can help increase the impact of your corporate social responsibility budget by as much as 85%

We’ve built an infrastructure of technology and people to capture plastic waste.

We do this by making plastic collection and recycling profitable for some of the most marginalised and impoverished people in the world.

We’ve developed a technological solution to create trust and transparency - to put an end to corruption and shady tactics behind the scenes.

How Empower helps you make a difference

Developing trust

Too often environmental efforts deteriorate as a result of corruption. Unscrupulous groups take advantage by claiming to clear an area, but end up dumping the plastic elsewhere - or falsifying the whole process. 

Empower addresses these issues directly.

We collaborate with fully verified waste pickup crews and collection points all around the world.

Each step in the process is fully verifiable with incorruptible documentation.

Fully verified

From collecting plastic at the source through the sorting process to its eventual recycling and reintegration back into the supply chain - every step of the process is tracked using blockchain technology.

Using blockchain means data cannot be altered by us or any other link within the chain.

Blockchain enabled tracking

We’re fully open and transparent about where your money goes.

100% of the money goes straight to the waste pickers and processors who sort the plastic and bail it up. 0% goes to Empower. Only costs are 3rd party costs for payment processing. 

Transparent costs

Getting verifiable data is great - but with Empower, each kilo of plastic collected carries a full story with it too.

Whether the credit you purchased has helped clear a beach in Cameroon, a waterway in Laos or a dump site in Mumbai - you get a backstage look at exactly how your money has impacted the environment - and the people who you helped.

A story behind every credit

Øystein Johanssen
CEO of Anthophila

“When Empower challenged us, it was an easy yes, when you combine impact with good communication, it goes straight to our heart, to our WHY.”

Frequently Asked Questions 

How do plastic credits work?

Essentially a plastic credit is a token of value for the act of cleaning up plastic waste.
When you buy a plastic credit, the money from that credit goes to the group that clears and processes plastic waste.
Each credit is associated with a particular cleanup operation. After buying a credit, you will receive a certificate which includes verifiable details (including photos) of the cleanup operation your credits helped to sponsor.

What kind of plastic do you collect?

All types of plastic that would otherwise be dumped in the environment or end up in landfills.

Where is the plastic collected?

We work with verified cleanup organisations around the world. Plastic is collected from beaches and waterways as well as from inland environments, towns and cities.

What happens with the plastic? Where does it end up?

Much of the plastic collected is processed and recycled into useful materials. We help to channel funding into infrastructure to make processing and recycling as local to each cleanup operation as possible.

How much plastic do you clean up for $1?

$1 worth of plastic credits is equal to 2kg of cleaned up plastic. This 2kg is usually made up of plastic bottles, bags, toothpaste containers, fishing nets, straws etc.

How is my plastic credit spent and distributed? Who gets what?

100% of the money goes straight to the waste pickers and processors who sort the plastic and bail it up. 0% goes to Empower. Only costs are 3rd party costs for payment processing.

How do you prove that my money actually goes towards cleaning up plastic?

Historically, this has been a major issue due to corruption. We guard against any such corruption by requiring verifiable data for every cleanup operation. This includes photographs, geotagged location and timestamps for each credit. The blockchain technology we use, means that this data cannot be changed by anyone - and is fully verifiable by everyone.
